Arsenal's Walcott: Good to be underdogs

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott is happy for Liverpool to be favourites to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

The first leg of the all-Premier League quarter-final finished 1-1 at Emirates Stadium after Dirk Kuyt cancelled out Emmanuel Adebayor's opener.

Liverpool's away goal could yet prove decisive but Walcott is confident that Arsenal can go to Anfield and win.

"People can say that Liverpool are favourites," Walcott told the club's official website.

"That is a good thing really. We can just concentrate on ourselves and they can have all the pressure.

"There is plenty of belief, the lads have been buzzing in training. We'll turn to Saturday now and then back to the Champions League.

"We will take the positives out of this game, look at Liverpool's negatives and see where it takes us. I think we will go there, play our football and get a goal."
